Earnings season draws to a close–with another (slight) warning

As of this morning, more than 75% of the companies in the Standard & Poor's 500 stock index have reported fourth quarter earnings. As per usual, the bulk of companies have beaten Wall Street earnings estimates. (This is just a game that Wall Street and CEOs play.) But the degree of the beat falls short […]

Saturday Night Quarterback says, on a Sunday, for the week ahead expect…

...earnings from big name market movers such as Apple (AAPL) and Amazon (AMZN) to be more important market drivers than the Federal Reserve meeting, the resumption of China trade talks, and the January jobs report. That's quite a bit of macro news, but I think earnings reports from these stocks have the ability to cut […]

“Lower guidance” a theme for tech earnings this afternoon

Most of the major U.S. stock indexes clawed their way back into the green after a mid-day journey into the red. The Standard & Poor's 500, for example, closed the day up 0.22% (at 2638) from the Tuesday close. But that was still below the 2641 the index began trading at this morning. U.S. stocks […]

Are earnings estimates cuts running ahead or behind?

With today's announcement of a big miss from Samsung--and Apple's cut to December quarter guidance last week--it seems like CEOs and analysts are rushing to cut earnings estimates and projections before companies actually start to report next week.
